Potluck reminder

Reminder that our annual school potluck is tomorrow night – Wednesday November 6 from 6-8pm in the school cafeteria.  Along with good food and games to play, it is a great way to meet other D. A. Morrison families.

In an effort to reduce waste, we’d ask all families to to bring their own plates and cutlery if possible. We will have some extras on hand if needed.

We hope to see you there!

Bake Sale – calling all bakers

D. A. Morrison School Council will be hosting a bake sale at the Choices Information Night that will be taking place on October 23 at 6:30pm. This information night will help to explain the choices available to students as they move to high school. It is a valuable session for all grade 7 and 8 families and is highly recommended.

All proceeds from the bake sale will go towards funding our amazing music programs. If you would like to donate any baking (homemade or otherwise!) please bring them to the school on October 23 and drop it off at the office. Please remember to label all reusable containers so we can get them back to you.

Thank you.
